it to the administration or us. what happened in that situation is there are some who have said that by taking the word al qaeda out and putting extremist that changed the content. i don't see it that way. i think extremist covers a lot of different individuals and not only terrorist, but people involved in the militias in libya and other area, but that has been a debate today. has general petraeus' position changed from benghazi to now? has she hifted? because he seems to convey the impression that he knew from the start that it was a terror group or this one namedance ar al sharia and there were other reports flying around that it may be connected to the video protest. >> first let me say his testimony today cleared up a lot of issues on both sides of the aisle. i think it was important that the director of the cia it was important that he testify. i think it was important for our country and the intelligence community and to bring closure to the issues involving him. one of the issues that a lot of people were putting out that he resigned so he wouldn't have to testify about benghazi. that's ridiculous

to stay down actually is that that was our fred pleitgen. tell us how things have changed there. there's a new normal. >> reporter: oh, you're absolutely right. the new normal is that basically people have to live with the threat of rocket attacks the entire day. what they do is stay inside most of the day. it's interesting to see. every time people go outside they have to plan their route very carefully so they're near the vicinity of a hard shelter in skas there's another rocket attack. i can tell you this morning there's been a lot of them. i'm standing in front of those iron dome rocket intercepter batteries right now and literally about four minutes before our show it wechblt off and fired about three intercepter missiles that hit about four hamas rockets i would say about 200 yards above our head. we ourselves have been in the hardened shelter at least four time as day. so certainly it's taking a heavy toll on life. people can't get on with business. people are living in constant fear and a lot of people tell us they hope this ends soon, victor. >> let's talk about this on the bo
with the loss of homes, power and family in the wake of hurricane sandy. the u.s. death toll has risen to 88. 44 in new york state alone and the number continues to grow as many people are still missing. i spent the day on staten island where more have died in new york than anywhere else. some of the worst devastation is here and people told us they're not getting enough help as we visited some of the hardest hit areas with congressman michael brim, searchers discovered the body of two young boys. ageing 2 and 4, in the march. they were swept from their mother's arms. some were hoping for a miracle. there was no one today. >> we've confirmed four bodies. the two children they were looking for, they found the bodies. also in a different location, found an elderly couple. >> at least 19 have been killed on staten island. what we saw was very upsetting today and we are quoing to bring it to you this hour, but first, brian todd. he is on staten island. what are you seeing right now? >> well, we're in the new beach neighborhood of staten island. kind of on the southern and eastern end of the island.
and they used a bucket brigade to do that and kept doing it. they were doing it hours on end. they thought they would keep doing it. what prompted the evacuation today is when they started to clear some of the water from the basement where the fuel pumps are, they realized the damage was worse than they thought it was. at that point they realized they needed to evacuate. it was going to take too long. they needed to do something. >> we have seen a lot of heroic work, sanjay, at nyu before the situation and now at bellvue and our thoughts are with the doctors 'national guard and the nurses and orderlies. in our hour at 8:00, i think i misspoke and said there were no more hospitals in manhattan open. i forgot about beth israel. which is down at the lower eve east side. so there is one. la guardia will open tomorrow. that's the good news. as for the limited subway service that resumes tomorrow in new york, there in new york, no trains will be running south of 34th street, an area that includes, of course, the financial district. sandy's crippled the nation's biggest transit system. some stati

todd's been working the story for us and getting new information. brian, tell our viewers what's the latest? >> we found out that the house majority leader, republican congressman eric cantor, may have found out almost two weeks before the president did. this and other time lines we're following on the investigation have led to genuine anger over why the white house and other top congressional leaders weren't told sooner. a time line cnn has put together shows the republican house majority leader may have known about former cia director david petraeus' extramarital affair before the president did. that's according to aides to congressman eric cantor who tell us he found out from an fbi employee concerned that national security might have been breached as a result of the affair. cantor was told on october 27th. president obama didn't find out about the affair until after election day. congressional leaders from both parties are upset that neither they nor the president were informed until late last week. >> obviously this was a matter involving a potential compromise of security
. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining us this morning. more new details on jill kelley, the tampa socialite linked to a respected marine corps general and widening sex scandal. each day it seems more and more loik a bad reality tv show. we've seen kelley march in front of the cameras in a different brightly colored dress each day. now there are report that is her bay front mansion is -- she's having trouble. it could go into foreclosure. we also have learned that she and her surgeon husband are awashed in debt and now faces foreclosures and lawsuits. that's far different than appearances. consider jill kelley's license plate. cnn confirms she's an honorary consul of south korea. at least for the time being sheechlt raise d some eyebrows and a few chuckles when she tried to invoke some kind of imaginary diplomatic powers in this 911 call to police. she was complaining about the media outside her home. >> you know, i don't know if by any chance -- i'm an honorary consul general so i have inviolability so, um, they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if y
-mails to jill kelley, the woman whose complaints led to the resignation of patreaus. general allen is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan. was nominated to become nato's supreme commander as well. he has denied any wrongdoing. so, how are these people linked to the scandal? how are they connected? follow us. we'll try to explain this. general patreaus resigned after admitting to having an extra marital affair with paula broadwell. a friend jill kelley asked to investigate harassing e-mails see whas receiving from paula broadwell. the "wall street journal" saying the fbi agent who initiated the investigation at kelli's request is under scrutiny. the agent has not been identified but allegedly sent kelley shirtless photos of himself. started with a complaint about harassing e-mails. he here's what we know about the woman who made that complaint, jill kelley, married to a cancer surgery, she has three daughters, lived in tampa, well-known among washington social circles. they have been friends with general patreaus and his family for five years. friends describe kelley as an innocent victim about
with that vision is that provisional conciliation. but i think we will speak with a true democracy by using the outcry and the due process and make sure that all things will be equal and fair. and in thailand also we aim for -- we like to see additional reconciliation. so our opposition will be with the passion and peaceful way. a democratic way will be the place to solve the problem, thank you. >> let me just say first of all that, you know, democracy is not something that is static. it's something we have to constantly work on. the u.s. is the oldest democracy in the world, but we constantly have to, as citizens, work to make sure that it is working to include everybody, to make sure that the freedoms that are in our constitution, the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, that those are practiced and observed. so the work of democracy never stops. i think that what you're seeing here in thailand is a democratically elected prime minister who's committed to democracy, committed to rule of law, committed to freedom of speech and the press and assembly. but obviously what's true in thai
larms in the 1990 gulf war but the people are not used to it. if you look at the people around gaza and the israeli cities there they have in a common place and the people here i would say somewhat in a mode of panic and now as i said the rocket appears to have hit an empty field and certainly what we can say is that it appears as though both sides in this conflict are upping the ante and not taking their foot off the gas. this conflict is escalating rather than deescalating >> i want to correct. i said there were three israeli soldiers killed. they apparently were injured and not killed. do you have any updates on the numbers who have been killed or injured in just the last few days of fighting? >> we have 24 palestinians killed including several children and elderly woman and that of course is inside the gaza strip and also as you said more than 200 people were wounded in those on going air raids. i can tell you i spent last night on the border and you could see it was lit up the entire night. as far as the israeli side is concerned, you're right, it is three soldiers wound when h
the latest. >> hi, erin, well, a u.s. official confirms to cnn that the fbi investigated a tip that he was involved in an extramarital affair, paula broadwell. his biographer. she spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan for the book he wrote. cnn has not been able to reach broadwell for a comment and it's not clear whether she is the woman whom petraeus had the affair. the counterintelligence unit investigated the tip to see if there was a security risk. they said tl not suggestion that the fbi was investigating for wrong doing. the concern was that he could be in a vulnerable spot. >> and is there any information that you have in terms of this information that the fbi had as to whether this woman that you mentioned, paula broadwell, we'll talk more about her, that she would have accessed his information with his approval or unbeknownest to him? >> i know the two kept in touch. i've worked with paula professionally as well. i've reached out to her several times today and haven't gotten a response, but we know they continue to talk frequently. >> all right. thank you very much. suzann
that, he was the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. we get more on his legacy and unexpected resignation from chris lawrence. >> reporter: he sent this letter to the rest of the cia on friday admitting to them that he had an affair and that he went to the white house on thursday and asked president obama to accept his resignation. on friday, during a phone call, the president did accept that resignation. effectively shaking up the national security team just days after the election. by the time david petraeus got his first taste of real combat, he was a 50-year-old major general. in 2003, he commanded the 101st airborne during the march on baghdad. it was in iraq that he asked a roert, tell me how this ends suggesting trouble the u.s. would have there in later years. they gained the nickname king david, used affectionately by supporters and by those who labelled him a celebrity general in 2007 president bush assigned petraeus to lead the troops in iraq and he wrote the petraeus doctrine. a scandal brought him back to command another war when president obama fir
is a woman and is the only one out there using the information that she had? it is interesting to me. i'm not quite sure what the president is talking about. >> there is still so many thing that is we don't know. is it surprising that they are going after secretary of state rice and not clinton? >> no, i don't. right now, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him and think he has the experience. i don't think it has to do with her womanhood. beyond that, this is shaping up as a nasty fight. it could get quite personal. and i think everybody has an interest and sort of we just had an election and we are trying to create a bipartisanship in washington. and i think she may have to do some private rounds and that would help a lot. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. did you hear anything from the president that sounded like a compromise that would work? >> not today. this is a president who clearly feels that he has got a lot of leverage now. i heard that in the president today. and what he was doing was -- and dan i can talk more about thi
he asked a reporter tell me how this ends. he got the nickname king david used by supporters and to those that labelled him a celebrity general. in swechb, president bush appointed petraeus to lead all troops in iraq. he rewrote the field manual and his ideas became known as the p petraeus doctrine. obama tapped general petraeus as the man to save the afghan war effort. >> it has again been the greatest of honors to serve here. >> because of his name recognition among the american people, he was surrounded by speculation that he had political ambitions. some wondered if he would appear on the republican presidential ticket, but he knocked down those rumors. >> we're not out there running a political campaign, we're running a war. >> at a senate confirmation hearing to head the cia, he admitted that president obama decided to withdraw thousands of troops significantly faster than petraeus wanted. >> the ultimate decision was a more aggressive formulation, if you will, in terms of the timeline than what we had recommended. >> petraeus' wife, holly, sat behind him in that testim
and petraeus that indicated the affair. more details are coming out about the timeline of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. the fbi informed the director of national intelligence james clapper about the investigation on tuesday night, election night. just as some polls were beginning to close. that director clapper as a friend, colleague, fellow officer and admirer urged petraeus to step down from his position. we know as well from that intelligence source that director clapper informed the white house about the investigation on wednesday and then on thursday the director and -- the questions now, of course, will focus on this second woman. who was she? what was the nature of her relationship with petraeus, and what more do officials know about the nature of those emails between broadwell and this other woman? maybe some of those questions will be answered as the oversight committees now begin to pose questions of their own over this investigation and why they weren't informed of it until just hours before director petraeus sent notice of
petraeus possible affair and possible security breach in october after the investigation began. a u.s. official says the general's communications were never compromised and he was never the target of the investigation. another issue, petraeus stepped down days before he was supposed to testify before a senate committee about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. micha micha michael morell will testify instead. >> we've got to get to the bottom of benghazi. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during, and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. >> reporter: cnn has not been able to reach broadwell for comment. now, the woman who allegedly received those harassing e-mails from broadwell hasn't been identified publicly and, of course, questions still remain about just what those e-mails contain. fred? >> what more can you tell us about paula broadwell. >> reporter: we know that she's a married mother of two, lives in charlotte, north carolina, and first met general petraeus back in 2006 when he came to harvard's kennedy school
:00 p.m. eastern. tweet me @alivelshi. have a great weekend. >>> hello, everyone. thanks for joining us in the cnn "newsroom." i'm fredricka whitfield. harassing e-mails and david petraeus was having an extramarital affair. it's part of the fbi investigation that led petraeus to resign but top lawmakers, both republicans and democrats, are demanding to know whether they were informed about that investigation in a timely fashion. cnn's athena jones has more. >> reporter: as more facts emerge about the circumstances that cost cia director david petraeus his job, so do the questions. >> i have questions about the whole matter. >> like who knew what, when about the fbi's investigation into an investigation that his biographer, paula broadwell, sent harassing e-mails to a woman close to petraeus. according to an official, it was that probe that caused the investigation of petraeus and broadwell. a phone call from the fbi came on election night. but it's unclear when the fbi probe began. >> the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earli
to itself if washington allows us to go over the fiscal cliff. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to to 20.9%, it could go up another 9%. according to a new research new york post poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 50% say it will have a major effect on the economy, 21% say a minor effect, 2% no effect, 10% say they don't know, which is why you're watching this right now. president obama says they're centering around increasing tax on the wealthy which will go a good way in increasing the revenue that he wants to raise in the next decade in an attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to reinstate the bush tax cut which goes to the top 2% of earners. that would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second one would go from 36% to 39%. he's been focusing on this specific number since his reelection which suggests he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well he's talking about. taxes on investment gain would also go up. the capital gains tax would go from

are using. but when it comes to a ground war, people feel very differently about that, very concerned about the possibility of having thousands of troops come in here from israel. >> is there any sense there among people in gaza that there could be any real effective resistance to a ground war because israel simply has such a powerful military compared to anything there? >> well, i talked to one of the hamas leaders just yesterday night, and we talked a little bit about that. because when you talk to defense experts who are looking at what people have here and what hamas, for example, has here as far as weaponry goes, the main thought is that they have more and more sophisticated weapons that they've been able to smuggle in, for example, through the egyptian border and under the tunnels and weapons that have been given to them in part by iran. now, when we talked about that, they wouldn't come out and say, yes, we've been getting more and more weapons from iran, but they did say they did have more sophisticated weapons but certainly nothing compared to what israel had, and they said they kn
